HC Deb 16 April 1981 vol 3 cc268-9W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will arrange that during the Easter holiday period any person able to give adequate proof of citizenship may enter and leave the United Kingdom without going through Customs and immigration control.

Mr. Raison

No. Under the Immigration Act 1971 it is for immigration officers appointed under the Act to determine whether a passenger is patrial. Customs control is a matter for my right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
